This month I visited Sunnylands Estate and Visitor center. It was a memorable day, touring the estate, which was the former home of Leonore and Walter Annenberg, and hanging out in incredible Visitor’s center and gardens.
The first three images are from the Visitor’s Center garden, which was designed by Landscape Architect James Burnett who, “used Vincent van Gogh’s Olive Trees of 1889 as inspiration for this masterpiece view of the Center’s unique gardens.
Burnett carefully crafted nine acres of desert, designing 1.25 miles of walking paths that meander through more than 70 species of native and arid-adapted plants from North and South America, Africa, and the Mediterranean area. The gardens were carefully conceived to appear different in every season with variations that create a memorable sensory experience.
The bottom 6 images were taken in the garden of the Sunnyland’s estate. The estate was designed by architect A. Quincy Jones, and is a jewel box of Hollywood Regency architecture, filled with their original period furnishings, artwork and many historical artifacts from their private and public lives.
May 1st was the four annual LilySarahGrace craft fair in Hollywood, California.
Coming together again at Milk Studios, in a giant space filled with talented, generous and kind volunteers, beautifully fluffy clouds, and balloons dipped in glitter, was a day created by two friends, Jennifer Levy and Elizabeth Goetchius.
Jenny and Elizabeth, came together to create yet another amazing light filled day, supporting Children’s Public Art Education. The idea is simple, creating art, with children, for children. There is so much love in this event, and more specifically love for art, and respect for the importance of creating beauty in our lives. Shout out to all the artists, crafters, food makers, DJs, participants and, volunteers who made such a beautiful day possible.

Lily Sarah Grace Fund raises money to create arts eduction grants for public schools all over the country. This year the space was filled with giant oragami cranes, and beautifully painted Manzanita trees that the children could hang their written wishes on ( think Yoko Ono wish trees ).
The day and the space were filled with creativity, beauty, giving and incredible generosity!
The kids had opportunities to make so many different projects, to visit, to eat great food, and get their hair done by Boyd Tizenor !!!!
Amazing and and super fun. Jennifer Levy and Elizabeth Goetchius have organized this event each year so beautifully, and put their whole hearts into making it successful and memorable. This year Dewey Nicks did portraits on site which was fantastic addition to the experience and energy.
Karen Kimmel and Kimmel kids, Flowergirl LA, Catherine McCord of Weelicious, , Estee Stanley, Jules Blane Davis and many many others were all on site creating beautiful and fun experiences for the kids and adults who came out.
My heart was so full with the spirit of creativity and generosity that comes out in this event. I am grateful to be able to participate in what happens each year to help support this incredible foundation created by Matthew Badger to remember his three beautiful daughters, Lily, Sarah and Grace, and to remember them through all of the love and art that comes out of his foundation.
